it is not. america is the oldest country in the modern world. because the american constitution provided us with a template for classless democracy. not the america that she did but certainly that was the ideological template around it. india is important, 1947, because india is the oldest nation and the postcolonial world. and the indian constitution similarly creates an ideological template for democracy. but with the emergence of india also emerged china, and china had a different template. again, not getting into what is right and what is wrong, but these are alternative -- how to run your nation and postcolonial society. and very interesting we received in comparison to parties, won the congress and the chinese communist party. actually became the dominant force in the post-independent state. one advocate would have to be -- because both emerge from ravaged economically driven set of needs. the congress offered soft left. the chinese offered hard left, or autocratic left. a long story, both had -- >> you said long story shorter i want to get to the short part. spent discussing it with

more danger than the issue because every countries use military force, especially air force, to respond on the airspace incursion. on the other hand, the japanese coast guard is dealing with china's lower air force ships. so i think this action will involve military force into this dispute. so there is a possibility to escalate both countries' actions. >> quite a dangerous situation. do you think china could take further action over the islands? >> i don't think so. but it is very difficult to find out which level decided to let the aircraft invading japanese airspace. but once happen, this kind of issue, the china's leaders or headquarters must support this kind of action. but we cannot see any kind of change of china's leaders intention for the senkaku islands. the president has already started the campaign to get rid of the corruption. he doesn't want to escalate any other dispute with this campaign. so i think it's danger to take action by simplistic thinking way. i hope both japan and china, dealing with issue very calmly. >>> authorities in north korea have provided a boost for th

the u.s. currency hits a 20-month high against the yen. investors are keeping a keen eye on how far the dollar will go against the yen. the u.s. currency reached the upper 84-yen level in new york for the first time in 20 months. the dollar hit 84.95 yen at one stage on monday in new york. investors bought the dollar against the yen after liberal democratic party leader shinzo abe said his new government may reach an agreement with japan's central bank on an inflation target. there is speculation the central bank may come under further pressure for monetary easing measures. the dollar/yen is currently trading at 84.82 to 85. >> catherine, the incoming leader abe has even mentioned revising the bank of japan law which adds more pressure onto the central bank of japan. now, a bit of background, the boj decided last week to extend its asset purchase program by 10 trillion yen, but many investors think the bank needs to do more, still. let's go to ramin mellegard who is at the tokyo stock exchange to get a check on how all of this is affecting tokyo markets. ramin, good morning. >> good
surrounding the talks, treasury secretary timothy geithner warned this week the u.s. will not be able to pay its creditors after monday unless the debt ceiling is raised. we will have more on the fiscal cliff talks, speaking with congressmember dennis kucinich after the headlines. environmental protection agency head lisa jackson has announced a resignation ahead of president obama's second term. jackson departs after a four- year tenure that saw advances in the regulation of environmentally harpo practices such as mountaintop removal and the emissions of harmful chemicals from industrial plants. it was marred by a number of key disappointments on environmental issues. president obama rejected jackson's proposal for tougher regulations on smog pollution last year, even though jackson submitted a proposal she viewed as a major compromise. she has recently tried to impose restrictions on carbon emissions from new power plants, drawing a concerted republican and corporate pushback. after ignoring global warming in the 2012 campaign, obama has re ntly vowed to address it during his second term.
achievement of nelson mandela is the normality here. people used to be afraid that when he died, the country might fall apart. well, there is real anxiety about his health now, but no one thinks the south africa is in danger. >> let's go live to the conference to speak to milton. i and the end, the vote was not that close, was it? -- in the end, the vote was not that close, was it? >> in the end the president was elected by over 2000 votes. only 900 for the challenger. it is clear that they want him to lead south africa for another seven years. >> let's look at the process that got him there. but we have heard criticisms. what does the process tell us about the state of this amazing party once led by nelson mandela? >> this process tells us one thing, that the party of nelson mandela was plagued by sectionalism and serious allegations of corruption, which is how we got to this conference. there were accusations that president jacob zuma, for example, took public funds from the state coffers and renovated his private home. they are currently leading an investigation into that allegation. >> t
with all designated persons connected to the iranian government. it bans trade and commodities used, it is designed to stop iran from busting sanctions by receiving payment in gold or using oil payments in local currency to buy gold. we have got to stop an effort to water down these sanctions. i say that because i remember the votes in the past, i remember our effort on the central bank. it was only because we got unanimous votes because we got so much sport that we were able to deploy those. let me add there's another portion of the amendments here that targets the regime for their human rights abuses and i think one of the areas where we have really been short, for those of you who talked to those who have been in the prisons, who have experienced the torture, seen the murder, experience the rapes, those are routine. iranian officials are involved in that activity but also in massive corruption preventing humanitarian assistance, food and medicine from reaching the iranian people, they are the beneficiaries of some of this and this new amendment would authorize the administration
the other lesson learned for us is to look beyond the tactical level of training that's provided by the department of defense to consider what ways we might also engage in terms of institutional development with the defense institutions and that's something in the last several years where we are ramping up in the department of the ability to provide advisers and other types of institutional reform engagement with various military partners to ensure that just as we are looking at strengthening of the tactical level we are also focusing on the institutional strength of these defense institutions. >> ms. dory can we afford to wait a year for planning, training, assembly of a regional force for the completion of negotiations for the successful election in some press accounts aqim is described as this point the best funded and best equipped most potentially lethal affiliate in the world and those accounts are overblown but the suggestion is we should have an area the size of texas controlled by terrorists engaged in drug trafficking and kidnappings that have had an inflow of some soph

was levi strauss. now, 140 years later 450 million pairs of jeans are sold every year in the u.s. alone. now, you would think with that volume, the manufacturing process would be totally mechanized but actually a lot of it is still done by hand. a typical pair of jeans is made from 15 individual pieces, someone has to oversee cutting all of those pieces and sew them together and as you can see in this discovery channel documentary, the seams get ironed out flat then the zipper and the rivets are attached and finally, because who wants new-looking jeans they get distressed. workers put them on giant rubber legs that get blown up like balloons and then they give some rough treatment to them so they really look like they came out of a california mine. now, that discovery channel documentary might show satisfied workers happily doing their jobs but the truth is that kind of work is really hard. it requires a lot of tough manual labor. and for that, american companies have gone overseas and specifically to bangladesh. that c
